You could do.

Alternatively you could watch some paint dry or some bread go moldy and get a similar paced slice of "entertainment".

Don't listen to Protein, he's heathen scum. :bash:

I'd go for that price, should be a good finish to the match.

I tried to watch some cricket just now. I thought maybe I should give it another go.

I lasted about five minutes.

I have no idea how someone can watch bored looking guys standing around in white outfits doing nothing for A WHOLE DAY!

I can't imagine journalists being able to write anything about the game at all.

The most exciting thing that happened was a camera shot of a cloud.

It was a great cloud though. All moody and black in the centre and lit up by the sun around the edges. It was sort of looming over the cricket ground like god decided to smite the cricketers.

We had the cricket on the radio at work the other day, and the commentators hardly mention the game at all. It's like"

"[rambling 15minute discussion on something vaguely amusing that happend in the early 80s] ...England are now 125 for 2... [rambling 15 minute discussion on the place of technology in the modern game] ...England are still stuck on 125 for 2... [rambling 20 minute discussion on a sinister cloud looming over the ground] ...We'll be stopping for lunch at the end of this over... [rambling generic oldperson conversation about sandwiches]"

I'm with protein on this. Its a great game to play yet the most dull game to watch.

Easy. Everybody's unbelieveably drunk.

By about 5.00PM, you might notice the average cricket crown just makes a constant "Urrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr" noise. That's how drunk everybody is.

I went to the first day of the Old Trafford Test last year. There were a group of maybe ten or twelve lads a few rows in front of us, who were collecting empty plastic pint-glasses. At about four in the afternoon, they raised the cricket bat they'd brought with them to the crowd around to signify 100 pint-glasses not out...

Well I didn't make it in the end, probably just as well - they turned 10000 people away. I doubt I would have made it there early enough.

Australia are just going to bat out a draw anyway, will be boring.

Why do they actually call it a "test match"? What are they testing? When is the "for real match"?

Funko
15-08-2005, 12:44:03
I have no idea.

You get test matches in rugby too though.

So rugby isn't for real either then. Ha, no wonder they don't need protective gear!

Tackling and scrimmages my arse, it's just one big gang-cuddle!

The scrum is just a way for the forwards to keep warm.

We dont like the backs, thats why we leave them to freeze their arses off in the cold

It's ironic, the pretty boys don't get any of the action.

They're saving themselves for the locker room action.
